Adam Schefter is sticking to his guns.
So are the Bears.
The ESPN workaholic told the "Afternoon Saloon" on WMVP (AM-1000) that the Bears have agreed to terms with former Seahawks general manager Tim Ruskell.
The Bears, who denied a Tuesday report from Schefter that Ruskell continue to deny that any deal has been reached. A team spokesperson said he's confident the two sides have not yet agreed to terms and didn't expect any further news Wednesday.
This still looks like it's going to happen. If so, here are the questions that most need to be asked if the seemingly inevitable becomes reality: Is Ruskell an upgrade over former pro personnel director Bobby DePaul, who was fired earlier this month? Have the Bears improved their front office by, in essence, swapping De Paul for Ruskell?
The answer remains to be seen, of course, but this seems like a John St. Clair-for-Kevin-Shaffer type move from afar.
DePaul had great success while adding players that helped the Bears reach the Super Bowl in 2006 but fell on lean times since. Ruskell had great success early in his career in Seattle until a series of bad decisions contributed to the team's meltdown in recent seasons.
